What are the risks associated with botox injections?

Dr. Modiri reviews all of the risks with you before you decide whether to move forward with Botox treatments or not.

However, the primary risk associated with Botox treatment is an allergic reaction to one of its ingredients. It’s essential to let Dr. Modiri know if you’ve ever had an allergic reaction to anything before to ensure the treatment is safe for you.


How does infrared therapy work?

Infrared (IR) therapy uses low-spectrum light to relieve pain and helps heal your body at a cellular level.

Nitric oxide is vital to the overall health of your arteries and is a crucial component of Infrared Therapy. Infrared energy helps initiate the release of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow in the treatment area.

This increase in blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to injured, aching tissue, expediting your healing. It also reduces pain and inflammation.


What happens during an infrared therapy session?

The light energy penetrates beneath the surface of your skin and is absorbed by your deep tissues. That enhances your blood flow by upwards of 400%, and the effects of circulation last for several hours.

During your session, you relax in the chamber while watching Netflix, listening to music of your choice on Spotify, or just enjoying the moment.

The treatment takes about 40 minutes, and it’s simple and painless. Depending on your individual health challenges, it can take up to 8-12 weeks of consistent Infrared Therapy for optimal results.


What is the sunlighten IR sauna?

The Sunlighten IR sauna is an advanced system that uses the latest infrared technology and high-end materials to fine-tune the health benefits with seven wellness programs for treating anti-aging, natural healing, and providing preventive benefits.

Unlike red light therapy, IR sauna therapy penetrates deep into your skin and is particularly beneficial for muscle strains, soreness, and arthritis pain.

The Sunlighten IR sauna promotes effective full-body detoxification by raising your core body temperature and causing you to sweat. Through your sweat, your body expels toxins that are harmful to your health.

With this, your body receives a boost to your immune system and balances your biochemical processes, providing you with better digestion and a reduction in symptoms of conditions like:

  • Colitis
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Immune deficiencies
